Koyaanisqatsi (Motion picture)
Life out of balance
|责任：||Metro Goldwyn Mayer ; Francis Ford Coppola presents ; an IRE presentation ; produced & directed by Godfrey Reggio.|
Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi Indian word meaning variously: crazy life, life in turmoil, life disintegrating, life out of balance (the subtitle for this film), and a state of life that calls for another way of life. This film presents a concert of visual images that progresses from purely natural environments to nature as affected by people, and finally to our contemporary urban environment that is devoid of nature. The film is visual with musical accompaniment and some singing. At the end of the movie, title cards describe a Hopi prophecy.
